Martin To Drive For Turner In N’Wide, Trucks In 2011
Martin will drive the No. 32 Dollar General Chevy at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Auto Club Speedway, Michigan International Speedway and Kentucky Speedway. Trent Owens will be atop the pit box.
He will also pilot the No. 32 truck in the Camping World Truck Series at Michigan and Pocono Raceway.
I’m excited to be running back in the Nationwide and Truck series again. Everyone at Dollar General and Turner Motorsports has been great and I’m looking forward to hitting the track with them next year. Working with Turner, I get to extend my relationship with Chevrolet and continue to have Hendrick horsepower under the hood which is really, really good. The races we picked for both series are personal favorites of mine. I’d love to win another Truck race, and I’ve got to get back to Victory Lane in the Dollar General car so I can keep Kyle [Busch] from breaking my Nationwide Series record.
Owner Steve Turner said:
Mark shares my same passion for helping groom young talent and has expressed interest in helping us get our young drivers to the NASCAR Sprint Cup level. I can’t think of a better mentor than Mark Martin. Everyone at Turner Motorsports knows the value and experience he brings to our organization and we are all delighted to have him join our team. We look forward to getting Mark and Dollar General into the winners circle in 2011.
